Teaching Partner

Hi! I’m Ms. Hochstetler and I am the Teaching Partner/Instructional Coach at Yale Elementary. Teaching has always been my passion and I’ve been in the education field for over 30 years. I have been at Yale Elementary for the past 16 years in a variety of positions, including 2nd grade teacher, CLDE Teacher Leader, Administrative Assistant,and finally Teaching Partner. I have enjoyed each role because it allows me to work with both students and teachers.

When I’m not at Yale Elementary, I enjoy working in my garden, exercising (jogging and swimming are my favorites), traveling with my family, and of course, listening to classical music. My son is a junior at the University of Colorado, majoring in Piano Performance, so when he is home our house is filled with his music.

I know this school year will be unique with remote learning during the first quarter. This may present many different experiences and challenges, but I know after all these years at Yale that this community will work together to make it a successful year!
